An ode to my Harley Quinn Cup

Ohhhh, thee Harley Quinn cup!

Many a cup of smooth coffee and tea, one had in thee,

Until tiny little terrors, with teeny tiny hands,

Took upeth the nerf gun.

Why didn’t they just shoot myeth, straight into my heart?

Little shards of red, black and white, scatter across the floor.

Like repeated stabs to thine heart.

Ohhhh, the Harley Quinn cup!

Scan:

(Poem)

Scan me, tell me what you see,

Do you see the girl you want me too be?

Do you see the heart, that maybe as big as a tree,

Do you see the brain that, dreams a thousand dreams.

Scan me, tell me what you see,

Do you see the soul that’s as wide as the sea?

A life that’s been from here to there, and around again,

Can you see the gentle hands that wants to heal the diseases beneath.

Scan me, tell me what you see,

Do you see the real me?

Sticky Tab:

(Story)

Sticky tabs are my favourite. They are so small and so handy and they go everywhere, and you can put them everywhere! I notebooks full of sticky tabs. I have sticky tabs “we missed you” messages. The more colours the better. You can never be disorganised with a sticky tab!

Permission

With the Western New Year, coming on by. I’ve been trying to think of new resolutions, or goals. I am writing a longer post about that tomorrow.

Personally, though, for me, is to give myself permission. Permission to not write a blog post all the time. There’s no reason too not write a post all the time. I can still read them though. Who knows, maybe it’ll inspire me.

Just ever since, I had my wisdom teeth removed, I haven’t felt really inspired since. It could be from the operation itself, or it could be just the timing. One the same day as the removal, it was overly humid, and since I couldn’t even water, I really nearly fainted. So I’ve not been feeling it since, and that needs to be okay with me. I cant expect to be “on it” 100% of the time. Forcing myself to be 100% will just mean that I take longer to be 100%.

Little bits and pieces

Just to let you all know what’s going on.

I was going to write about this yesterday, but I found something more interesting to write about, lol

I see Rowling is still being her reverent self, lol.

Probably more importantly though, my mouse is not working well. It’s either really overly sensitive, or it just doesn’t work and then I end up bringing every screen, twice. It’s really annoying and it’s why I am not streaming until I get a new one. Which hopefully should be happening this weekend. I don’t need anything fancy, just something that works, lol

It does also mean though, that I can’t stream…Not that I’m 100% sure if anyone here does.

It has been affecting my blogging too. It’s all over the place, I can’t write in block properly, it goes in and out of them. It’s hard to copy and paste. It’s hard to schedule. I’ve been having a hard time liking posts. It’s been a bit of a mess. Yesterday it closed out of WordPress, at least three times, while I was trying to get through people’s posts.. If you want to see me rage, my Twitch channel has a little video of me raging, lol

Thursday Theories – He’s real

This is the last time I will write about the the new Ariel “The Little Mermaid”. Mainly because I feel like you, my lovely readers, already “get it”.

The main reason I’m writing about it, is because I cannot get over the general stupid reasoning with “adults. Their “reasons” behind their whining. I will not give them the dignity of calling it an opinion, it’s just REALLY stupid.

For me, I can’t get over that these are “adults” whining, people my age, my mum and Gran’s age. It’s incredible!

Some of the stupidest things I’ve heard are listed below:

  • If they had a white man play Martin Luther King Jr, there’d be outrage!
  • She traditionally, was always played by a white person!
  • If you had white people play characters in Colour (Color) of People and Roots. There’d be outrage.

OF COURSE THERE WOULD BE, YOU UTTER BUFFONS!

Martin Luther King Jr, was a REAL person. Who fought for POC. He’s the one who really got the Civil Rights Act, moving. Colour (Color) of People and Roots, while may be not based on real people. Are based on REAL LIFE EXPERIENCES.

They are NOT MYTHS! They are real, living breathing human beings and real experiences.

As for the “traditionally always played by a white person” comments. So? It’s still a mythical creature, whose never existed. If a POC had written it first, it would have never been published to begin with. Andersen wrote his Little Mermaid and it was published in English: 1845. It just wouldn’t have happened. Also one, again, is a character in a fairy tale, and the other well known Mermaid, is an animation. So…

Honestly, I can imagine Mermaids and Men, more in Caribbean waters than the cold depths of European waters. That’s just me though. Look, the Little Mermaid is not my favourite Disney movie. It’s not close to even the Top 5. Considering what time Andersen lived in though, and the fact that he travelled too Italy, Greece and Constantinople. I suspect, he may have been influenced by those countries. But in the 1800’s, who, in Europe, would have read a story about a POC mermaid? Have you seen the fuss they’re making about in 2022?

Whoever has been in Rome is well acquainted with the Piazza Barberina, in the great square, with the beautiful fountain, where the Tritons empty the spouting conchshell, from which the water springs upwards many feet. “Hans Christian Andersen” The Improvisatore (1835!) Ten years before the Little Mermaid????!!!!

Focus

Over this next week, I am going to try and re-focus my mind.

Which means, over the next week I invite you … TOO MY MIND!!! Hahahaha.

It’s more, I like to write to get my thoughts out. What I thought I’d do this week though is too write here, on the blog. Not about more personal things, I’ll leave that to my journal. Just more things, how I can focus on things around the world. What I want to do is get my mind to remember the good things. The things worth fighting for.

It’s getting mentally tough out there. I need to sit and refocus. I am still blocked on Twitter, and I am so thankful. I know what I’m going to do when I get it back. I plan to really stay off of it still, but I will be making a “post”. Then I really wont be on there anymore.

I hope you enjoy the next week of posts, because a lot are about dreams and ideas I have to make the world better. Well, how I think so anyway.

Ask me anything…The answers.

You asked and I am now delivering!

OK, crunchy or smooth peanut butter?! Asked by Meerkat Musings

For the lovers of peanut butter, this is the question to end all questions. Smooth or crunchy. I genuinely had to think about this one. In the end I went with smooth. The literal only reason being that when you have a sore throat, it really does hurt trying to swallow the crunchy down. Do not ask me how I know that, lol. That’s the ONLY reason I could choose.

Favourite dish? Asked by LIFESFINEWHINE

I thought of this question, as if being asked what would I want for my final meal. The first thing that came to mind was lasagna. It has been the one constant favourite meal in my life. I have literally either gotten food poisoning or I couldn’t keep it down when I’ve been heartbroken, from the rest.

What do you consider to be the 5 most beautiful things in the world? Asked by Life Lessons From Around the Dinner Table

  1. Nature. Even when it’s really scary, it’s still so beautiful. How it know’s what it’s doing, unlike us.
  2. True Love. I don’t mean that sappy “oh he’s so romantic” ‘true love’. I mean that, you look at your partner, a friend, a family member, your child, heck your pet and you just feel with that warmth. You all know what I’m talking about.
  3. This is going to sound odd, but there’s nothing more beautiful too me than silence, but also beautiful noise. That peace of silence when you’re alone, and have a break from other’s noises. Yet, at the same time, drums in the same motion, just as beautiful.
  4. A poem that you just love.
  5. Kindness, too others. It’s severely lacking lately. That I swear, if you get to see it or experience. Obviously kindness towards animals, is a must. But when I see a human doing it for another human being. That takes a lot of power, it’s beautiful.

Did I do good?lol

For the love of God, READ! *Rant*

You know how I know? That people DON’T read people’s blogs?

The comments, lol

How many MORE times do I have to tell people “Don’t lie to my face, about what I’ve written or said”

Like, I will like a lot of blog posts. But sometimes I even READ people’s blogs. Like if I have actually written “Oh I agree with this mostly, but this part is just silly” One, I clearly can tell it’s outdated and two, you all tell me how many kids you know what a Quality…what ever is.

I don’t blog on here, for it to be like Twitter and Facebook, where people don’t READ and REACT instead.

Stop it, right now.

Do not start doing that. This is the ONE place, I trusted not for people to do that.

Sometimes

Sometimes, I love to look up into the sky.

It’s hard to believe when you look up, no matter the weather.

That the world is currently as crazy as it is.

Since the kitties passing, I’ve been putting out wild bird seed.

I get to see all kinds of birds now, mainly pigeons though. Still waiting for the seagulls.

Sometimes, if they let me, I love to just look at the birds.

Yes, even the pigeons.

I can’t believe they don’t seem realise how crazy this world is.

It’s peaceful.

This is what every day should be like, peaceful.

Sensible, how things should be.

Getting on with it. None of this silly “whose genitals are what”

None of these “That total and utter jerk wad, is so hot”.

Why do we want to grow up, at all?

Been thinking a lot…

This week, I have had many a random thoughts. Here a list of some of them. See if you can guess, what they’re about.

  1. They could have had Beto
  2. One of the proclaimed “greatest writer of our time” just wrote penised.
  3. I have yet to see someone give a legitimate reason to NEED an AR.
  4. I really do wish that Twitter would shut down for 24/48 hours.
  5. Ted Bundy, reminds me how stupid women can really be.
  6. Unpopular #opinion. If you want to call yourself a #safetynetwork for a group. You HAVE to get over #ego and you may have to work with people you don’t like or agree with. Otherwise that “safety” net WILL fall. Think #TERFs and imagine if they run the women’s crisis centers.
  7. I wish I could have my furbabies back.
  8. Flag shaggers make me wanna vomit.
  9. I am so tired.
